Rough Landing, Holly Lyrics

Left the ground
In black and white
And when the plane went down
The colors all around
I know by now
The margin's slight
And still I can't get out,
She's all I think about
Can't let her go
It's who you know

We came down to watch the world walk...

    the song to me seems to be entirely about aspects of an anthropomorphic holy wood and how it is both good, bad, fun, and calm. I don't think this song is about a specific aspect though, it seems to be about all of it

    I honestly think they talk about Cocaine, how it controls you and when you don't have it you just 'crash'. 'Can't let her go, it's who you know' It's seems like he is really trying but 'she takes control' of his body, his mind. And the video it's kind of crazy, delusional, he's somewhat paranoid, the girl really stoned. All the song, the video, it's like he's screaming 'help! I want to stop using it but I can't!' First I though about heroine but then it says 'give me one more line' so I decided for cocaine. And I don't mean anyone from the band, just the story this song tells.

    The whole album talks about a girl named holly wood who Sean describes as a girl you love sometimes and sometimes you hate her. Mostly this song talks about in my own opinion talks about what she does in Ryans point of view.

    I know that the album is about how the current political status affects the band, and that Holly Wood from the title is a personification of Hollywood, and I also believe that the song shows this. They stick this extra bit in the chorus: "I love that sound so give me one more line" and I think this is a take on them acting like Hollywood, getting cocky and adding more in to please fans like an undeserved encore (personally I like that bit, so don't take this the wrong way). Also, in the video, we see several references to affairs, like the beginning for instance where Ryan is in bed with another guy's girl! Then later, we see a kiss being passed along a line by the band members, possibly signifying the great deal of affairs in Hollywood.
